After working close to 50 hours a week, spending about 10 hours doing coursework for Speech Science a week, it is insanely hard to do anything just for the hell of it. Often i end up falling asleep in my textbook or the couch at work. Anyhow, beyond my true responsibilities- you know cooking “healthy meals” or doing laundry so that i don’t become a repulsive member of this society- the number one thing i should be doing is promoting myself for the Star in a Bra Contest. I’ve discovered that many of the other girls have been featured on their local news and one girl was on television for her fox news syndicate. Not to mention, many of the photos that are used to promote this contest only has 6 of the ten girls in them but I digress. Anyhow, being that my local news is well, NYC my story isn’t really being picked up so i decided to take my story to the streets.
I ended up getting a good deal..well a good deal for a lazy, procrastinator like me that waits two days before she needs to accomplish a task. $70 for 400 flyers of my big smile. They just have my picture on the front and the back has a blurb about who i am and what i represent, not to mention a QR code that takes the user to a video and then a code for free shipping at Bareplus.com when you enter SHIP2ME which you guys are free to use.
I wanted to be a colorful as possible for pride
The funny thing about momentum is that once you really have it you don’t want to slow down. I don’t want to stop posting my outfits. The outfits are not ~fashion blogger~ worthy but I mean who cares I wear regular clothes and it doesn’t really matter. To me, I wonder what those fashion bloggers wear in the rain because it poured and I’m pretty sure I would have been upset if I were wearing and outfit that cost more than what some people make in a week.
Anyhow, lately I’ve been getting a metaphorical itch. It’s so deep and is almost taking over everything. I haven’t felt this since I was 18! Somehow everything feels both wrong, boring and awful at the same time. I’m getting an urge to redo my entire life, my hair, my clothing, my furniture arrangements, actually everything except I guess I’ll keep my boyfriend he’s good to keep around haha.
This all started last week when I got accepted into GA State’s communication disorders program which is highly ranked, dirt cheap, only two years, my family and best friend lives there and my boyfriend did not hesitate to say he would come with me. It all felt like a calling- a perfection, the path i’d been waiting for but in the end i decided to stay in New York and attend LIU Brooklyn at three times the price, an extra year and a lower quality of life. Well it’s ok I can’t drive and if I went to Ga State I couldn’t get TSSLD but still for some reason I can’t shake the feeling that I made the wrong decision.
Our lives are filled with decisions every second of every day big and large and while sometimes we stress about it, most of the time we just accept them and move on. We can never take both options, both paths and thus we may aways regret our decisions because we can always find the grass a little a greener.
This weather is BANANAS.
I woke up this morning a gross sweaty mess thanks to a severe lack of AC (well we have one but it’s in its box in my living room and I have no clue how to install it) I spent far too long wondering whether dresses or or shorts and a tank are cooler in 99degree weather.
Anyhow this H&M from sooo last season is my favorite and I love it so much that I have it in black. Oh and by the way it is barely clothes since it is actually a swimsuit coverup. It’s like a giant mumu which is of course why I’m the most fashionable gal har har.
On a serious note-
Please visit http://kyra.chipin.com/kys-service-dog and read about the sweet Kyra and help her get the service dog she needs!
So I love wearing clothes but neglect to take and post picture but fear not ye viewers for I have done it today and yesterday yes a whole two days please please hold your applause!
I felt like a cute, new teacher before she gets jaded and also no I’m not hovering but wearing black leggings.
H&M has has this bunny print on different items and I’ve loved the print but the clothing it has been were ill fitted cardigans and frekum dresses (with bunny print??) but I found this gem in several sizes too big but with a tie waist and everyone knows H&M’s sizes don’t make sense. I’m also wearing my new ASOS plug bracelet which I’m in love with.
It’s been a week since the second round of voting went live and I definitely have so many feelings. Currently I’m working full time close to 50hrs a week, taking an online course that requires about 7-8 hrs a week and trying to do chores and keep my life together all at the same time. I have been trying to promote myself but honestly I’m doing a subpar job even though my family and friends have been there for me and have hassles people to vote!
The contestants are all so wonderfully nice and beautiful it is a truly stiff competition but two of the contestants are popular bloggers and well, 1,000 views for a YouTube video in one day compared to my 700 in a week speaks volumes. So I’m trying to work and just being happy that I’ve come so far as if I lose it doesn’t mean the end of my opportunities and if I win woo hoo!
Curvy Kate Posted a behind the scenes video and i think it captures me pretty well TBH i think i look best behind the scenes lol
I’m last of course haha at 3:05 so i tried to link it so it started at my time eh oh well
SO THIS IS IT! The contest is open for the final top ten voting and of course i’m dying, everyone looks great and sometimes it’s hard to see that i do too c’ste la vie. I created this video as a follow up toe the VOTE ME BABY video that people seemed to enjoy a lot but i like this one so much better
when you get time go here to vote:
just add the app and vote for me, Krista
sneeze face Krista thanks you
ugh i feel so weird talking in 3rd person
So I’ve been totally ignoring posting but thanks to the wonderful Internet I made it to the top ten of the Star in a Bra Contest USA.
The girls look so gorgeous and it was nice to see that there was another person of color there also! June 7th was my photoshoot and I was super nervous. I was the last girl of all the ten to get my picture taken. I was fitted with many many many bras and then was guided to make up, the artist did an amazing job of natural but sexy/beautiful makeup and I begged the hair stylist to curl my hair something I simply cannot do nicely myself. My hair is so thick that she had to stop at one point in order to do another women who was apparently a corespondent for a daily morning show whose name has escaped me.
Anyway at this point i’m all made up and have done one interview on camera mind you my hair was all pinned up while the curls set and I simply was so nervous as she asked me each question even though I anticipated an interview and even read over my previous answers for guidance.
Finally it came time for the actual shoot. I felt so beautiful and confident for once and walked right up in front of the camera and everyone was so nice and gave me directions and ideas but ive actually had small time photoshoots before just never in my underwear and so as soon as the flash went on so did my poses. At first I felt awkward when I couldn’t think of more poses but everyone was still very nice and gave positive critiques like how to place my hands nothin at all like watching top model haha. They had a huge fan and it was awesome! I felt like wonder woman standing there confidently with the wind blowing in my hair.
After my shoot I finally got to nom on cookies, almond kisses etc and then it made me feel so good when Hannah, who is part of the PR for Curvy Kate, came to me and told me that everyone loved my “Vote me, baby” video and that they had played it that morning!! It was too hard to hide my glee!! Then see asked me if i could record a video and take a picture because some of the guys in the office has been “fighting over me” which was super flattering so I held a sign saying happy birthday and smiled. As the shoot came to a close I didn’t want to leave and neither did the other girls,I could tell. In the end it was such a beautiful experience and I truly am lucky I am so anxious to see the photos when they come up!
Meanwhile Dan and I are working on my next video which seems like it will w cooler than my last one but I am not sure If it will be as popular or well liked. I guess only time will tell!
So IDK why but i drew this picture and also finished Jem! after pretty much marathoning through the three seasons, it ended so abruptly! I though Jerrica would tell Rio that she is JEM oh well i’m going to make a ~deep~ post about the show later
Last week when I was sick I missed the girl I babysit’s 14th birthday. Now most people ordinarily purchase cards but it’s always been my thing to make them. Even though this took less than ten minutes and I came up with the idea on a whim I think it was a hit!
The outside says happy birthday which is typical but when opened the left side says Eden (middle and last name) is… and on the right hand side I wrote 14 or you could put whatever age obviously. Then I just slapped a bunch of post it’s on (it was later brought to my attention that I should have used 14! -_-) and wrote adjectives describing what she is such as funny or sweet and thus she had to take them all off and read them to discovered the message.
